Cameroon’s separatist war: Anglophone grievances and its diaspora – SAIIA


Summary:

  • A fifth of Cameroon’s 28.5 million people live in the two English-speaking regions of the country, formerly known as British Southern Cameroon.
  • English-speaking Cameroonians experience increasingly marginalization by the French-speaking Cameroonian elite.
  • The crisis in the Anglophone regions of Cameroon turned into a civil war in 2017.
  • Anglophone Cameroonians among the diaspora are deeply involved in this conflict and play an important role in Cameroonian politics from outside the country.

This policy insight provides insight into the origins of the grievances of Anglophone Cameroonians, the role of the Anglophone Cameroonian diaspora in conflict, and prospects for a peaceful resolution of the conflict.
